Like everyone else, I am deeply saddened by Robin Williams’s death. His death came as a surprise to me. I did not realize that he was experiencing mental illness.
I found out when I was sixteen that I had depression and when I was in college, it got to the point that I really did not want to live anymore. If it was not for having Jesus in my life at the time, I do not know what I might have done.
There are days when life does get tough but I just have to remind myself that God has a plan for me and will help me through it, if I let Him.
Robin Williams will be missed but I hope that through his death, people can learn about mental illness.
